The space
An original place to stay..This is a working painting studio and is based upon the one I used to have in the mountains of the Berner Oberland, in Switzerland and has just been newly renovated. If you wish to experience something unique, then this is for you. It has a full size double bed, sofa-bed, living seating/viewing area, small kitchen and lots of natural light and views towards Cullahill Mountain. It is Entirely made of wood and has original Swiss doors leading out onto your own private porch. The new Norwegian wooden extension, now provides a separate bathroom, sauna and kitchen with washing machine and is only a 10 second walk away. We provide bottles of drinking water. A torch is also provided for late nights.

Guest access
The gardens, swings, pool, sauna/fire-pit (upon request), treehouse, bar and use of bicycles.

Location

Laois, Ireland

Beautiful rural setting, with farmland as far as the eye can see, rolling hills and views of Cullahill Mountain and surrounding forests and almost no light pollution. A retreat from city life.
